Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: I am the first and I am the last; besides me there is no god. Who is like me? Let them proclaim it, let them declare and set it forth before me. Who has announced from of old the things to come? Let them tell us what is yet to be. Do not fear, or be afraid; have I not told you from of old and declared it? You are my witnesses! Is there any god besides me? There is no other rock; I know not one.
Food For Thought:
In this Scripture, we are reminded of the primacy of God in our lives. All too often, we have other things that we place before God. Sometimes our priorities are all out of alignment. Today, think about your own life. Do you feel that your priorities are in order? If not, then what could you do to realign your priorities with God in mind?
Steadfast God, teach us your way and your truth. Root us in you alone. Help us to grow in grace and love, that we may fulfill our role and our work in the reign of Jesus Christ. Guide us as we look at our priorities and help us to align our priorities with your kingdom. In your holy name we pray, Amen.
